Start times, how to watch on TV, ticket list

Everything you need to know ahead of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear, round seven of the 2023 NTT IndyCar Series.

This weekend’s event will be the first at a new temporary street course in downtown Detroit, a 1.7-mile, nine-turn circuit with a split pitlane. The race will take place over 100 laps (170 miles), as opposed to the traditional two-header event format at the previous Belle Isle location.

There have been five different winners in six IndyCar Series races to start the 2023 season: Marcus Ericsson (St. Petersburg), Josef Newgarden (Texas and Indianapolis 500), Kyle Kirkwood (Long Beach), Scott McLaughlin (Barber) and Alex Palou ( Indy road course). The record for most different winners in a season is 11 in 2000, 2001 and 2014.

The Detroit Grand Prix will be the 33rd IndyCar Series race to be held at the Motor City. A 2.5-mile street course in downtown Detroit hosted CART events from 1989 to 1991 before the event moved to Belle Isle Park in 1992.

Will Power, Scott Dixon and Helio Castroneves have each won three times at Belle Isle and are tied for the most Detroit GP wins. In addition to Power, Castroneves and Dixon, other past Detroit Grand Prix race winners entered include Pato O’Ward (2021 Race #2), Ericsson (2021 Race #1), Newgarden (2019 Race #1), Simon Pagenaud (2013 Race #2) and Graham Rahal (2017 Race #1 and Race #2).
